this is probably what i will do as well.


1m credits and 700 cc to unlock her on every character on my account?
seems like a fair deal to me tbh.

Can we PLEASE half the price? 1050 CC or 500k credits would be more appropriate.

YAY! I pay 15 bucks a month but still have to PAY more for a new companion that I will just have to worry about somehow getting affection for.....

Ya. Bioware. If you are going to add a new companion, give people a way to earn affection that doesn't involve spending piles of credits for gifts.

And how about you actually give subscribers something for crying out loud!!! There is NO WAY IN H*** I am paying 1 mill credits for a blasted companion, let alone ANY cartel coins. This is just flat out ridiculous.

Question for Bioware (not sure if this is the right place for it, but the topic on it on the PTS forums fell off the first page) - everyone I've seen who has compared Treek to existing tank/healer companions has noted

(1) She has a smart AoE as a tank, which other tank companions don't (as far as I am aware?)
(2) She can outheal other companions in the same gear by a significant margin (40-60%, depending on the post I've seen)
(3) She not only has a cleanse, but it's also automatically applied by her HoT...maybe I'm just missing something, but isn't that stronger than the other healers' separate cleanse?

Is that disparity matched in your models? Intended? Just curious, as it seems like companions should have essentially the same abilities and one companion shouldn't be distinctly superior to another that has the same role.

Thanks!

I completely agree with you, it must be another way to get money from people to take the shortcut and use the CC route rather than level up to legacy 40, even then F2P and preffed players more than likely won't be getting the comp due to the credit cap. BW is going down a dangerous path, reminding me of EverQuest to be honest.

about the quest???

is this just talking to the droid? I don't remember any "quest" to acquire treek on the pts, but it does say the quest is on fleet so I assume they just mean buying the contract and giving it to the droid across the room

I like that fact that my legacy of over 40 is worth something , so no to the half the CC for her. Maybe the 1 mil credits is a little steep and considering I spent 5 mil of my 8 mil credits on augmenting 4 characters then yeah I'm not so rich atm.

Cheers,

I think I got pretty close on my guess.

Sort of what I was expecting but a bit more generous.

I still think Legacy Level 40 is a bit too high, something in between 25-30 would do better.
And speaking about companions in general... i'd love to see more class specific ones, or soon we will find ourselves having more generalized ones then them.
